Ratatouille Roman Style

Nick found this delicious vegetarian dish in one of my German cookbooks. I have never made Ratatouille before so I wasn’t sure how this dish would turn out.

Instead of cutting the Zucchini in little slices, this Roman Style Ratatouille shows them cut lengthwise, baked with fresh tomatoes and topped with cream, Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs.
